6:01 pm
protest inside the meeting. the message was heard but the outcome disappointing. fees must go up. >> it's approved. it's going to happen. >> reporter: the regents approved a 9.6% tuition increase. that's on top of an 8% increase already approved bringing undergrad tuition to more than $12,000 a year. that's 18% higher than last year. and that's without room, board or books. >> we had to approve the increase, no choice, to preserve the quality of the university, the top priority. >> reporter: bottom line, university students like joseph silva will be strapped. >> i'm already working as a barista and server at my current job. wanted this tuition hike, i'm going -- and with this tuition hike, i'm just going to have to take more loans because i can't pay for it just with work, with the financial aid that i got, which makes grad school look
6:02 pm
unreasonable but what am i going to do with just a bachelor's degree now days? >> reporter: uc officials say this is as a result of state budget cuts and they had no choice. but you might imagine, to students, this is an 18% increase from last year so for some students it's a difference between a university, a state college or going to a jc. >> all right. juliette goodrich at ucsf, thank you. a police chase with speeds topping 6miles an hour through an east bay neighborhood ends with a driving smashing into a retaining wall. these pictures from chopper 5 show the imprint of the car into the wall there. the crash happened on tara hills road just outside of pinole. the driver was trapped and unresponsive when paramedics arrived. he had to be flown to john muir trauma center in walnut creek where he is in critical condition tonight. police say it all started when that driver took off after failing to stop. they think he has outstanding traffic violations. a doctor on the way to work

6:04 pm
the truck driver was identified by his company. he reported that he had a green light and the bus came out of no. >> reporter: this goes on all the time. to be a pedestrian in this area or driving is dangerous. >> reporter: 52-year-old dr. kevin mack was killed after he was thrown out the window of the shuttle and landed underneath the big rig. dr. mack was a psychiatrist at sf general hospital. >> the patients that he cared for here at san francisco general are -- have the least resources of anyone here in the city. and he was there for them even more importantly because it will be his legacy, he was committed to teaching others how to do that, as well. >> reporter: his other passion, his family. dr. mack leaves behind two children. [ indiscernible ] has been his husband since 1998. they have been together for 20 years. octavia and oak has been a
6:05 pm
problem intersection that has seen many wrecks in part because people are trying to get on the freeway nearby and sometimes race through the yellow lights. put could something have prevented this one? a san francisco supervisor says he wants a traffic flow study. he also brings up the issue of seatbelts. these shuttles don't have any. >> we require seatbelts on shuttles for children. i think it begs the question considering how dramatic and severe that this particular incident was and this accident was should seatbelts be part of the commuter experience in terms of that transit experience? and i'd say that this particular incident helps spotlight that strong consideration. >> reporter: this is the second fatality involving a ucsf shuttle bus over the last year. a 65-year-old pedestrian was killed in november as she crossed geary at leavenworth. ucsf officials express their condolences to the mack family
6:06 pm
as well as others involved in the wreck today, ken. but they are not answering questions specifically about that shuttle bus, you know, for one thing, what about those seatbelts? and for another, how well trained are their drivers? we'll have to stay with them as they promise they would get back with us and they still have not answered those questions. >> thank you, joe vazquez in san francisco. we have breaking news out of boston right now where there has been a runway collision at logan international airport. wing of a delta jet clipped the tail of a smaller comair regional player. we are told that one person has been hurt. no other injuries that we know of. just to repeat, logan international airport, there's been a collision between a couple of planes there. as we get more details, we'll pass them on. the girlfriend of the prime suspect in the bryan stow beating is now behind bars.

6:08 pm
identified. all they are saying is that a woman -- it was a woman and she probably did not live in the rockridge area. she also had other injuries. authorities stopped short of saying the body had been dumped here. neighbors told me they haven't heard of anything even completely similar to happening in this sheltered section of north oakland. violent crime is relatively rare here. >> the body right now appears to be a female. there is some fire damage to the body. >> this is pretty good neighborhood, for oakland especially. i know there have been robberies in the past but i never heard of a dead body. >> reporter: one theory is that whoever did this chose this particular area because it's close to highway 24 and provides a quick escape route. police are expected once they have identified the body to start checking some of the missing persons registries to see whether or not they can
6:09 pm
make a match there once they get that identity. we have also learned now that there is a $10,000 crimestoppers reward being offered to anyone who is able to provide information leading to an arrest. live in oakland, christin ayers, cbs 5 cbs. in the headlines, firefighters right now mopping up after putting out this brush fire near the altamont pass. those flames broke out just after 1:00 this afternoon. cal fire says the blaze torched more than 400 acres. heavy smoke was visible from interstate 580. fire crews were able to put down the fire before flames affected any nearby power lines. pg&e will now be required to provide firefighters were maps of their facilities. the state public utilities commission issued some new rules today. pg&e will also be required to give the puc inspection records of gas transmission and gas storage shutoff valves. the changes follow recommendations made in the wake of the san bruno pipeline

required to cover the contributions of the l-g-b-t community in soc another landmark law in california. public schools will now be required to cover the contributions of the lgbt community in their social studies courses. the governor's office announced today that he signed the bill. he issued a statement saying, quote, history should be honest. it will be up to local school boards to decide how to implement the law. it doesn't specify at which grade level the instruction should begin. the new requirement goes into effect for the school year starting in 2013. meantime, california schools are getting a break from a new law requiring students to prove they have been vaccinated against

6:15 pm
science behind this claim? dr. kim mulvihill joins us now. and i'm sure you have researched this well and are going to tell us all the facts. >> first off, ken, pms, premenstrual syndrome, is real. millions of women face this on a monthly basis. the question, will milk make it any easier? reporter: many women get it and dread it. the monthly curse of pms. >> feels like a demon living inside me basically. [ laughter ] >> that's true. >> and, you know, it just was -- made you feel really out of control. >> reporter: well, a big glass of milk should drive the demon out. according to the california milk processor board, milk works wonders for pms. this week, the board launched a campaign showing how calcium in dairy milk helps to reduce symptoms. the theme? everything i do is wrong. it plays on the idea that men don't know how to handle women as they approach their period. the board believes the humor
6:16 pm
gets the message across. not everyone is laughing. >> oh, no. condescending. everyone is so different. >> just take it with a grain of salt. >> reporter: what's the evidence behind the claim? in a study of nearly 500 women researchers found calcium supplements 1200 milligrams a day really improves symptoms. that's the amount of calcium in these two caplets. how much milk you would have to drink? four eight ounce glasses of milk. >> oh. that's a lot of milk. >> reporter: not only that. women with a higher body mass index are at higher risk of developing pms. so if you want to try the milk remedy, stick to skim or low fat but don't expect miracles. >> her whole life and it didn't affect anything. still grim. >> reporter: now, every woman is different. dietary and lifestyle changes can often help with pms. in addition it calcium, vitamin
6:17 pm
e and magnesium may help. when that's not enough, prescription medications might make a difference. keep an open mind and you know -- >> laugh about it. >> i think calcium -- >> you mentioned something a while ago. we were talking about. ice cream. >> yeah. >> ice cream. who doesn't love ice cream? who is that the not going to put a smile on everyone's face, husbands, wives. >> got ice cream? >> ice cream. >> of course, you know, age -- >> i knew it. >> age also helps. eventually -- >> eventually it stops. >> eventually the pms gets replaced by other things, yes. >> great. happy talk here. thank you. [ laughter ] let's check in with roberta right now for the latest. >> i know. why are you guys coming to me after the pms story? huh? what did i do to tick you off? >> don't be so upset, roberta. >> i know what it is, it's the cooler weather, isn't it? today's numbers, a good 19 degrees below average in many neighborhoods. this is the scene in san jose where today's high temperature was 70. look at that visibility though.
6:18 pm
you have to admit with the cooler air mass, we have great air quality and unlimited visibility. now, at this hour, we still have some areas of low clouds and fog stacked up around the san mateo coast but because of a northerly and northwesterly wind to scour out much of the marine layer, nevertheless it will be pushing back onshore tonight. now, if you are out the door right now, make sure you have a jacket. the winds have been howling out of the west at 20, gusts up to, boy, 33 miles per hour. we do have delays at sfo over two hours on some arriving flights. these are the current numbers 5. 4 in pacifica to 74 degrees in santa rosa. these numbers again anywhere between 7 and 19 degrees below where they should be for this time of year. now, we do bank on tomorrow maybe a degree or two warmer and. reason is, take a look at your pinpoint forecast. this looks like every other day we have been featuring and forecasting this week except one notable difference. the low clouds, fog, scour out a little bit earlier during the
6:19 pm
afternoon hours. so again, i'm living large! going out there with the slight warming trend tomorrow. a degree warmer. in vallejo at 69 degrees, 71 degrees in redwood city and in san jose, this weekend, it's try for fun, you will want the arm warmers, 65 degrees at the beginning at the tri for fun. this weekend will be the warmest of the two coming up on saturday. warmer weather by this time next week. that's the pinpoint forecast. i'm mike sugerman. a mere muggle among the wizards waiting for harry potter. are you excited? > yeah, i'm excited. closed captioning of eyewitness news is brought to you by shreve & co. jewelers, a san francisco original. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
